"We had a great stay. We only stayed 1 night. We were very close to the free trolley stop and to Fishermans Wharf. Check in and check out were easy."

Why We Love This Hotel

  • Designated with a Conde Nast Traveller Readers' Choice Awards in 2018
  • On-site craft brewery, outdoor pool and kids club
  • The hotel has the largest day spa in Monterey
  • A five-minute drive to Monterey Bay Aquarium and Cannery Row

Overview

On the coast among the wineries and beaches of central California lies the Portola Hotel & Spa at Monterey Bay, which recently completed a lobby renovation and added a new restaurant. This child-friendly property is also home to the area’s largest day spa and Monterey's original craft brewery.

The hotel is set on a historic plaza and is within walking distance of the vibrant Fisherman’s Wharf and Monterey Bay Aquarium (ask at the hotel about tickets — they are the same price as when you buy direct, but are valid for two days instead of one). 

The hotel does not have air conditioning, but all nautical-style bedrooms have ceiling fans and large windows or patio doors that open to the sound of the ocean (and the occasional seagull or seal). Most rooms overlook the city or the pool courtyard. Upgrade to a Harbor View Room on the fifth or sixth floor for impressive sea views at night. Wi-Fi is free in the lobby or bar, but available for an extra charge in the guest rooms.

The hotel has three on-site restaurants: Jacks Monterey, the hotel's newest restaurant which features California cultural cuisine; Peter B's Brewpub, a craft brewery; and the Club Room, which offers a European style breakfast buffet daily.

Note: The hotel will be updating its guest rooms through April 2020. There may be possible noise disruptions from 8 a.m. - 6 p.m., so if you plan to work/sleep in your room during this time please contact the hotel so its team can try to secure you a room away from the work area. You can reach the hotel at 1-888-222-5851

    The hotel location was amazing; however the location of our room was probably the least desirable in the hotel. We were down and around many corridors. The room overlooked the hotel trash dumpster. The hotel itself was beautiful.
    Other Comments
    On our first night the guests in the room next to us left their dogs in the room for the evening. They barked continually for about 3 hours. We called down to the front desk and they tried to contact the guests with no luck. The hotel staff shared that those guests did not register for a dog friendly room.
